0000014: Descriptions of creatures do not make it obviously when it's talking about color
A creature's green wings? Yeah, that makes sense. A creature's CHOCOLATE wings? Well now you have some ambiguity going on. A simple fix of saying "His <body party> is the color <color>"
Look on any description, and realize your creatures AREN'T made out of lemons or chocolate, as delicious as they might sound
Very minor, but I can't imagine this is intended
No tags attached.

Or "his <body part> is <color>-colored."

Note: lemon and chocolate are colors.

This falls within the range of expected behavior. Removing problematically-named colors might make a good suggestion, though.
